The radioactive decay of Re-187 -< Os-187 (t(1/2) = 43 Gyr) is suited for dating the onset of heavy-element nucleosynthesis. The radiogenic contribution to the Os-187 abundance is the difference between the natural abundance and the corresponding s-process component. This component can be obtained via the well-established sigma N systematics using the neighboring s-only isotope Os-186, provided the neutron-capture cross sections of both isotopes are known with sufficient accuracy. We report on a new set of experiments performed with a C6D6 detector array at the n_TOF neutron spallation facility of CERN. The capture cross sections of Os-186, Os-187, and Os-188 have been measured in the neutron-energy range between 1 eV and 1 MeV, and Maxwellian-averaged cross sections were deduced for the relevant thermal energies from kT = 5 keV to 100 keV.
