    A measurement of B0s→ J /ψφ decay parameters, including the CP -violating weak phase φsand the decay width difference ΔΓsis reported, using 4.9 fb-1of integrated luminosity collected in 2011 by the ATLAS detector from LHC pp collisions at a centre-of-mass energy √s = 7 TeV. The mean decay width Γsand the transversity amplitudes |A0(0)|2and |Aarap;(0)|2are also measured. The values reported for these parameters are: φs = 0.22 ± 0.41 (stat) ± 0.10 (syst) rad} ΔΓ s = 0.053 ± 0.021 (stat) ± 0.010 (sast) ps-1Γ s = 0.677 ± 0.007 (stat) ± 0.004 (sast) ps-1|A0(0)|2= 0.528 ± 0.006 (stat) ± 0.009 (sast) |A0(0)|2= 0.220 ± 0.008 (stat) ± 0.007 (sast) where the values quoted for φsand ΔΓscorrespond to the solution compatible with the external measurements to which the strong phase δ⊥is constrained and where ΔΓsis constrained to be positive. The fraction of S-wave KK or f0contamination through the decays B0s→ J /ψK+K-}}\left({{f-0}} \right)}} \right.} is measured as well and is found to be consistent with zero. Results for φsand ΔΓsare also presented as 68%, 90% and 95% likelihood contours, which show agreement with Standard Model expectations.[Figure not available: see fulltext.] © 2012 CERN for the benefit of the ATLAS collaboration.
