We use high-resolution angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy to map the three-dimensional momentum dependence of the superconducting gap in FeSe. We find that on both the hole and electron Fermi surfaces, the magnitude of the gap follows the distribution of dyz orbital weight. Furthermore, we theoretically determine the momentum dependence of the superconducting gap by solving the linearized gap equation using a tight-binding model which quantitatively describes both the experimental band dispersions and orbital characters. By considering a Fermi surface only including one electron pocket, as observed spectroscopically, we obtain excellent agreement with the experimental gap structure. Our finding of a scaling between the superconducting gap and the dyz orbital weight supports the interpretation of superconductivity mediated by spin fluctuations in FeSe.
