We review the historical development of silica deposition methods using an atmospheric pressure plasma torch, from the Verneuil process for optical grade fused silica ingots to the Axial Lateral Plasma Deposition (ALPD) process for single and multimode fiber production. The present status of ALPD is presented, with special emphasis on index profile control, OH reduction and multiple ingot to preform pulling.
