Elements heavier than Fe are dominantly produced by neutron capture processes. About half of the heavy element abundances between Fe and Bi are synthesized in the slow neutron capture process (s process). Neutron capture cross sections at stellar energies are a main nuclear physics input for studying the s process. I will present recent and future time-of-flight measurements of neutron induced cross sections of astrophysical interest.
