We demonstrate dispersive wave generation, soliton fission and supercontinuum generation in a silicon wire at telecom wavelengths. Despite the strong nonlinear absorption inherent to silicon at telecom wavelengths, we experimentally demonstrate that the compression and subsequent splitting of higher order solitons remains possible. Moreover we observe the emission of resonant radiation from the solitons, leading to the generation a broad supercontinuum.
