A passive mode locking Nd:YAG waveguide laser with a gigahertz pulse repetition rate is presented. Single-layer graphene is used as the saturable absorber. A tubular waveguide in the active medium was developed to provide generation of only the fundamental transverse mode. Due to this approach, stable generation of pulses with a duration of < 20 ps and a repetition rate of 9.8 GHz was achieved.
