error checking for missing HDF groups

since not all of the groups will be written out - since they will not all exist for all data files collected, I will need some form of general error checking to account for missing fields, both cases, reading and writing.

on a case-by-case basis I specifically check.

For numerical fields, I commonly return an error value of -999999 if reading a field that does not exist.

For some fields like the lateral_offset, I simply return zero if I'm trying to (erroneously) read the lateral_offset of a top detector panel.
