Yes:

https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/ddl-constraints.html
|Adding a unique constraint will automatically create a unique B-tree index on
the column or group of columns listed in the constraint

https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/static/indexes-unique.html
|PostgreSQL automatically creates a unique index when a unique constraint or
|primary key is defined for a table. The index ... is the mechanism that
|enforces the constraint.
