6 The order parameter in Fe-based superconductors remains elusive. To get insight into the pairing mechanism, it is crucial to determine the gap structure in the superconductors like FeSe or pnictides. Though with lower T c, FeSe has the simplest structure, and this very simplicity could provide the most appropriate venue of understanding both the order parameter and the superconducting mechanism of Fe-base superconductors.
