Study on clustering of nucleons in nuclei is recently focusing on unstable nuclei where new kinds of structures, namely molecular structures with excess nucleons, are predicted. The Coulomb shift of energy in the mirror system is suggested to reflect the size of these structures. Although the missing mass spectroscopy is expected to give access to these structures even beyond particle decay thresholds without any biases in excitation energy spectra but the detection of very low energy particles is challenging. To satisfy the requirement, a new active target system MAIKo has been developed at RCNP. The detector was commissioned using a 13C beam under the same kinematical condition as that of RI beam experiments.
