This paper reviews the 'state of the art' of plasma activated chemical vapor deposition (PCVD) as a manufacturing technique for high-quality optical fibers. It includes a compilation of the features inherent to PCVD, a presentation of recent results with respect to the optical properties, and the reproducibility as well as productivity and a discussion on future aspects of PCVD.
