Photodisintegration experiments were carried out for $$^{186}$$W, $$^{187}$$Re, and $$^{188}$$Os using quasi-monochromatic $$gamma$$-ray beams from laser Compton scattering (LCS) at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. The excitation function of ($$gamma$$,n) cross sections was measured for the three nuclei near neutron thresholds, taking advantage of the intense peaking of the energy-tunable LCS beam in the energy region of astrophysical importance. Neutron capture cross sections for $$^{185}$$W, $$^{186}$$Re, and $$^{187}$$Os are evaluated from the photodisintegration data with the Hauser-Feshbach statistical model. We quantitatively discuss the two corrections factors for the s-process branchings and the neutron capture on the 9.75 keV state.
