Abstract (from CDS):

We present the revised catalog of galaxy clusters detected as extended X-ray sources in the 160 Square Degree ROSAT Survey, including spectroscopic redshifts and X-ray luminosities for 200 of the 201 members. The median redshift is zmedian=0.25, and the median X-ray luminosity is LX,median=4.2x1043 h–250ergs.s–1 (0.5-2.0 keV). This is the largest high-redshift sample of X-ray-selected clusters published to date. There are 73 objects at z>0.3 and 22 objects at z>0.5 drawn from a statistically complete flux-limited survey with a median object flux of 1.4x10–13 ergs.cm–2.s–1. We describe the optical follow-up of these clusters with an emphasis on our spectroscopy, which has yielded 155 cluster redshifts, 110 of which are presented here for the first time. These measurements, combined with 45 from the literature and other sources, provide near-complete spectroscopic coverage for our survey. We discuss the final optical identifications for the extended X-ray sources in the survey region and compare our results to similar X-ray cluster searches.
