We report a half-life of the ground state of $$^{184}$$Re populated by the $$^{185}$$Re$$(gamma,n)$$$$^{184}$$Re reaction with the laser Compton scattering $$gamma$$-rays generated through relativistic engineering. The $$gamma$$-rays are provided at the electron storage ring NewSUBARU. The previous experiment using deuteron-induced reactions has yielded a recommended half-life of the 3$$^-$$ ground state of $$^{184}$$Re to be 38.0 $$pm$$ 0.5 d, including a possible contribution from the 8$$^{+}$$ isomer ($$T_{1/2}$$ = 169 $$pm$$ 8 d) of $$^{184}$$Re since the presence of the isomer was not known at that time. In contrast, the $$(gamma,n)$$ reaction has an advantage to selectively populate the ground state because this reaction does not bring large angular momentum. The measured half-life of 35.4 $$pm$$ 0.7 d is shorter than the previous half-life by about 7%. This difference is crucial for applications using the activation method.
