Thermal conductivities were measured for a series of polycrystalline alloys of indium containing 0.1 to 2.5 At.% mercury. Using theoretical models which relate the electronic thermal conductivity of a superconductor to its energy gap, the temperature and composition dependences of the energy gap have been calculated for these specimens. Estimates of the lattice thermal conduction were also obtained.
