Since this work was published we have found that LC dewetting can easily occur in the presence of Fmoc-peptides within closed chambers. We now believe dewetting facilitated by the released Fmoc-peptides was responsible for the light-to-dark optical transitions we reported in this paper. Our recent studies on Fmoc-peptides within open chambers suggest that although they are clearly amphiphilic in molecular design, they are not effective at realigning liquid crystals. The authors would like to apologise for any confusion caused.
