We report an in situ scanning tunneling spectroscopy study of one unit cell (1 UC) FeSe film on SrTiO3(001)(STO) substrate. Bosonic excitation mode characterized by the 'dip and hump' structure is detected outside the larger superconducting gap in quasiparticle density of states. Statistically, the excitation mode, which is intimately correlated with superconductivity, shows an anticorrelation with pairing strength and yields an energy scale restricted by twice the superconducting gap as observed in cuprates and iron based superconductors. Quasiparticle interference analysis of Pb and Fe adatom dosed film demonstrates different changing behaviors of intra and inter pocket scatterings relative to adatom free case, indicating a sign reversing order parameter. These results clarify a magnetic nature of the excitation mode and reveal an essential role of electron magnetic excitation coupling in superconductivity of 1 UC FeSe on STO.
