Hi,

In DetectorConstruction, you need to define the optical properties of the material (see OpNovice example). In particular, for Cerenkov, the refractive index needs to be dispersive:

The Cerenkov process in Geant4 is limited to normally dispersive media, i.e., dn(E)/dE >= 0. (section 5.2.5.1. of the Book for Application developers).
