We report low temperature measurements of the resistivity of two-dimensional inhomogeneous InGe thin films, prepared by electron beam co-deposition of the constituents onto a cold (77 K) substrate. Samples with a wide range of resistances (up to MΩ/□) were obtained. For In concentrations between 20 and 50 vol% a double superconducting transition is observed. Although the dependence of the resistivity on In concentration hints percolative behavior, the temperature dependence of the resistivity and the I-V curves can only be described by considering the vortex flow resistance and the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition.
