Measurement of the CP violating phase \phi_s in Bs->J/\psi f0(980)

Abstract : Measurement of mixing-induced CP violation in Bs decays is of prime importance in probing new physics. So far only the channel Bs->J/\psi \phi\ has been used. Here we report on a measurement using an LHCb data sample of 0.41/fb in the CP odd eigenstate J\psi f0(980), where f0(980)->\pi+ \pi-. A time dependent fit of the data with the Bs lifetime and the difference in widths of the heavy and light eigenstates constrained to the values obtained from Bs-> J/\psi\phi\ yields a value of the CP violating phase of -0.44 +/- 0.44 +/- 0.02 rad, consistent with the Standard Model expectation.
