 Abstract: In this work we investigated the electrical properties of rapidly quenched amorphous Bi x Sb${}_{100-x}$ alloys in the temperature range of 1.2 K to 345 K. The resistance reveals that for a broad range of different compositions, including that for the topological insulator (TI), a superconducting state in the amorphous phase is present. After crystallization and annealing at an intermediate temperature, we found that in pure Bi and Bi x Sb${}_{100-x}$ alloys with composition corresponding to the TI, the superconductivity persists, but the transition shifts to a lower temperature. The highest superconducting transition temperature ${T}_{{\rm{C}}0}$ was found for pure Bi and those TI's, with a shift to low temperatures when the Sb content is increased. After annealing at a maximum temperature of T = 345 K, the samples are non-superconducting within the experimental range and the behavior changes from semiconducting-like for pure Bi, to metallic-like for pure Sb. Transition temperature ${T}_{{\rm{C}}0}$ of the amorphous Bi x Sb${}_{100-x}$ alloys have been calculated in the BCS–Eliashberg–McMillan framework, modified for binary alloys. The results can explain the experimental results and show that amorphous Bi x Sb${}_{100-x}$ exhibits a strong to intermediate electron–phonon coupling.
