As the others stated - make a ring and fill it with a linear gradient.

  • Create an ellipse with the Ellipse Tool (U)

enter image description here

  • Using the Path Selection Tool (A), click on your ellipse and copy it
  • Use Past in Place (CMD+Shift+V) to place the copied circle onto your initial one and then use Free Transform (CMD+T) to shrink the copied circle down. Make sure to hold SHIFT+ALT while you do!
  • With your new, smaller ellipse still selected, click on Subtract From Shape in the Properties Panel (Window > Properties)

enter image description here

  • Apply a linear gradient to your new ring
