There are several things not right with this code. I suggest you reduce your geometry at first to just one volume (tracker_phys) and then add your plastic shell, Al housing, one at a time. You should also define the corresponding surfaces as you build up your geometry in these steps.

For one, you give the experimentalHall_log a G4LogicalSkinSurface. This cannot work because there is no 'outside' to your world (experimentalHall_log) and I don't think you intended to do this (have photons bounce around inside your world).

Also, yes, the material "Air" has no index of refraction. Moreover, there is something wrong with how you built your geometry. It seems to me, a thin glass disk is placed in experimentalHall where there already is the tracker_phys. This produces an volume overlap not allowed in G4.
