The designing principles for the tunable refractive index by using magnetic fluids were discussed. The methods to achieve a desired flexibility in the tunable refractive index with externally varying fields by adopting suitable magnetic fluid films were also presented. The results obtained revealed the feasibility of developing index-match or index-tunable devices magnetic fluids.
