Iron-based superconductor is a class of high-$T_c$ superconductors discovered in 2008.

Are there any review papers about these superconductors yet? If not, which are the key papers in the field?


Well, Let Me Google That For You

For specific recommendations, the review in Nature by Paglione and Greene1 is very highly cited and accessible. There is a review of the magnetic properties by Lumsden and Christianson2 and a somewhat older article is available from Hosono and collaborators3. A Nature review on the debate over the pairing mechanism is available from Mazin4.
