Abstract

We present an entanglement concentration protocol (ECP) for the less-entangled W-state with quantum-dot and microcavity coupled systems. The present protocol uses quantum nondemolition measurement on the spin parity to construct the hybrid parity check gate. Different from other ECPs, the less-entangled W-state with quantum-dot and microcavity coupled systems can be concentrated with the help of some single photons. The most significant advantage is that during the whole ECP, we do not destroy the W-state and only consume some local single photons. The whole protocol can be repeated to obtain a higher success probability. It may be useful in current quantum information processing.
