A method has been developed for measuring work function changes continuously. It is an ac variation of the diode technique and can be implemented easily in a standard retarding potential LEED/Auger system with derivative detection. Measurements for oxygen adsorption on an Ir single crystal illustrate that this method resolves work function changes within 5 meV.
