We report the determination of refractive indices of polymer dispersed liquid crystal composite within visible spectral range 404-706nm for various temperatures. The droplet domain formation effect in polymer liquid crystal composite system with variation of different polymer dispersed in liquid crystal and pure liquid crystal has been studied. The optical parameters due to scattering by sapphire prism have been measured for pure liquid crystal and polymer dispersed liquid crystal. It is found that the optical anisotropy of polymer dispersed liquid crystal composite system is greatly changed by polar order present in the polymer droplet environment. The scattering is due to both reorientation and thermal effects. The wavelength and temperature dependent refractive indices are fundamentally interesting and practically important for optimizing display performances and other photonic devices employing LCs such as high temperature gradient LCs, high thermal tunable LCs, and photonic liquid crystal fibers
