The use of instructional media needs to be implemented in one of the courses such as wave and optics to cover up the contents of material. To bring this advantage, one of the alternatives that can be used is to use fiber optic sensors for detecting cholesterol concentration. This device brings about the concepts of how the wave and optics behaves and operates. In doing so, the variation concentration of cholesterol solution is 0 ppm, 50 ppm, 100 ppm, 150 ppm, 200 ppm, 250 ppm, and 300 ppm. The work mechanism of cholesterol concentration detection is laser propagation of He-Ne wavelength 632.5 nm through fiber optic in cholesterol solution and reflected back by flat mirror then ray reflected through fiber optic bundle so detected by SL-818 silicon detector in the form of voltage Output. The detection results showed that the maximum output voltage showed a linear decrease in the concentration of cholesterol solution with a sensitivity of 0.21 mV/ppm and linearity of more than 95%. In terms of developed learning media, the use of optical fiber sensor learning media is compatible with optical wave learning in terms of basic competence of lectures, learning indicators, learning materials, student worksheets and science process skills. From the assessment of validation of learning media obtained an assessment of more than 95%. The results of this study indicate the parameters and performance of sensors that have accurate potential as a medium for learning wave and optics.
