Spin- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy measurements were performed on Bi 1-xSb x samples at x=0.04, 0.07, and 0.21 to study the change of the surface band structure from nontopological to topological. Energy shift of the T and L s bulk bands with Sb concentration is quantitatively evaluated. An edge state becomes topologically nontrivial at x=0.04. An additional trivial edge state appears at the L band gap that forms at x0.04 and apparently hybridize with the nontrivial edge state. A scenario for the topological transition mechanism is presented. Related issues of self-energy and temperature dependence of the surface state are also considered.
