Tapered fibers have shown high efficiency to generate white light continua, which have many important applications such as pulse compression, spectroscopy, pump-probe measurements, and optical frequency metrology. In this paper, we discuss the principle of white light continuum generation in tapered fibers with incident pulse durations in the femtosecond and picosecond range. We are going to demonstrate some new technologies to design and improve the spectral characteristics of supercontinuum generation, which make tapered fibers very convenient for the construction of white light sources.
