A measurement of the production cross section ratio &#963;(&#967;b2(1P))/&#963;(&#967;b1(1P)) is presented. The &#967;b1(1P) and &#967;b2(1P) bottomonium states, promptly produced in pp collisions at s=8 TeV , are detected by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC through their radiative decays &#967;b1,2(1P)&#8594;&#978;(1S)+&#947; . The emitted photons are measured through their conversion to e+e&#8722; pairs, whose reconstruction allows the two states to be resolved. The &#978;(1S) is measured through its decay to two muons. An event sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 20.7 fb&#8722;1 is used to measure the cross section ratio in a phase-space region defined by the photon pseudorapidity, |&#951;&#947;|<1.0 ; the &#978;(1S) rapidity, |y&#978;|<1.5 ; and the &#978;(1S) transverse momentum, 7
