An active target system MAIKo (μ-PIC based active target for inverse kinematics.) is under development at RCNP. MAIKo is designed to investigate inelastic scattering at forward angles with a radio isotope (RI) beam. The active target is a promising device to study excited states above particle decay thresholds in unstable nuclei. In the present paper, the detailed design of the detector system is described. The first experiment using an accelerated beam was performed to study the detector performance under high counting rate. Preliminary results of the experiment are also discussed.
