With the use of numerical simulations based on generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation, we study for the first time the coherence of super-continuum (SC), generated in tapered and cobweb fibers in the regime with clearly defined solitions in spectrum. We suggest a simple model, which explains the influence of pump pulses power and duration on SC coherence. A possibility of concerned SC generation regime application in optical frequencies metrology is discussed.
