A new crystal array detector is proposed to conduct charged particle cross section measuremets with actinide targets for a study of accelerator transmutation of waste. The detector enables both the Time-of-Flight and the Pulse-Height measurements in an energy range around 600 MeV. From the simulation designs, it was revealed that the detector has great potential to realize a moderate energy resolution and a wide energy acceptance. Characteristics of GSO(Ce) and LYSO(Ce) crystals were also investigated through charged particle bombardment in view of consideration of the candidate crystal for this detector.
