We report the experimental observation of the fission of picosecond solitons in a fiber with sine-wave variation of the core diameter along the longitudinal direction of propagation. The experimental pulse dynamics is reproduced by numerical simulations. The fission of high-intensity solitons caused by both the variation of the fiber dispersion and stimulated Raman scattering is demonstrated. The number of output pulses and their frequencies can be managed by periodical modulation of the fiber dispersion even under the strong effect of the Raman scattering.
