Abstract

New superconductor FeS (Tc = 5 K) was recently discovered. It has the same crystal structure of FeSe, which plays a clean playground to investigate the superconducting pairing mechanism of high Tc iron-based superconductors. MuSR experiments are proposed to study the superconducting gap symmetry of FeS.
