Low energy spin fluctuations are studied for the electron-doped Fe-based superconductor LaFeAsO$$_{1-x}$$F$$_x$$ by inelastic neutron scattering up to the energy transfer of $$omega = 15$$ meV using polycrystalline samples. Superconducting samples ($$x=0.057$$, $$T$$$$_{rm c}$$ = 25 K and $$x=0.082$$, $$T$$$$_{rm c}$$ = 29 K) show dynamical spin susceptibility $$chi"(omega)$$ almost comparable with the parent sample's. However $$chi"(omega)$$ is almost vanished in the $$x=0.158$$ sample where the superconductivity is highly suppressed. These results are compatible with the theoretical suggestions that the spin fluctuation plays an important role for the superconductivity.
