    We precisely determine the contraction of AlAs in multilayer optical waveguides, associated with selective oxidation of AlAs/GaAs epitaxial heterostructures. The average thickness of each layer was determined via x-ray reflectometry before and after oxidation, yielding an induced shrinkage of...
