The $$^{187}$$Re nucleus is known to be a good chronometer to derive the stellar duration of the r-process nuceosyntheis and deduce the age of universe. However, there are several problems inherent to this chronometer. In order to solve these problems, one must know both the production and depletion rates (via the excited state as well as the ground state) of $$^{187}$$Os and inelastic scattering cross section off the ground state (J$$^{pi}$$= 1/2$$^{-}$$) of $$^{187}$$Os to its excited 10 keV state (J$$^{pi}$$= 3/2$$^{-}$$) are needed. Hence, in the present study we aimed to accurately measure the neutron capture cross sections of $$^{186}$$Os, $$^{187}$$Os and $$^{189}$$Os, and the inelastic scattering cross section for $$^{187}$$Os for neutrons between 10 and 90 keV by developing a new experimental method.
