To avoid having to rasterize:

  1. Draw an Ellipse using the Ellipse tool in "Shape drawing" mode while holding down the SHIFT key to constrain it to a circle. By default the resulting circle will have 4 segments/anchor points. enter image description here
  2. Use the direct selection tool to select and delete segments to give you the desired arc. enter image description here enter image description here
  3. You can always add more anchor points to the circle (Add anchor point tool) to get exactly the size arc you want by slicing up the circle into more segments. More anchor points added enter image description here
