Point contact spectroscopy results are presented on the electron underdoped Ba(Fe0.96Co0.04)2As2 single crystals. Two superconducting energy gaps with coupling values 2 Δp1 ∿ kTc ≈ 2.55 and 2 Δp2 ∿ kTc ≈ 11 at Tc = 15.5 K have been observed in the point contact spectra. The temperature dependence of the normal state background of the point contact spectra observed between Tc and TN indicates antiferromagnetic origin of the V-shaped minimum at zero bias.
