Abstract

For a newly discovered iron-based high Tc superconductor LaFeAsO1-xFx, we have constructed a minimal model, where inclusion of all five Fe d bands is found to be necessary. The random-phase approximation is applied to the model to investigate the origin of superconductivity. We conclude that the multiple spin-fluctuation modes arising from the nesting across the disconnected Fermi surfaces realize an extended s-wave pairing, while d-wave pairing can also be another candidate.
