We report >13MHz/mW pump power efficiency in increasing the repetition rate of passive harmonic mode-locking by engineering the soliton pulse energy in Er fiber lasers incorporating carbon nanotube saturable absorber. Stable pulses with a 5GHz repetition rate and 40 dB of super-mode suppression are demonstrated with only 400mW pump power in a single-clad fiber laser.
