We will present a status of researches in surrogate reaction method using heavy-ions to determine neutron fission and capture cross sections of unstable nuclei. We take advantage of having (1) an electrostatic tandem accelerator which can deliver highly mono-energetic beams of heavy ions, (2) rich experience in in-beam $$gamma$$ spectroscopy, (3) rich experience in measuring fission fragments induced by heavy-ions, (4) nuclear theory and evaluation experiences. We have constructed apparatus to measure fission fragments and $$gamma$$-rays in coincidence with ejectiles by which we can identify the populated compound nuclei. Primarily, we used $$^{18}$$O-induced reactions as well as $$^3$$He-induced reactions. We also investigated conditions under which such measurements lead to correct neutron cross sections. Results of the theoretical researches were published in a series of papers. In this presentation, status of results of the above researches will be summarized.
