We demonstrate the generation of a supercontinuum in a 2-cm long silicon wire by pumping the wire with mid-infrared picosecond pulses in the anomalous dispersion regime. The supercontinuum extends from 1535 nm up to 2525 nm for a coupled peak power of 12.7 W. It is shown
that the supercontinuum originates primarily from the amplification of background noise.
