We study quantum state transfer and multipartite entanglement generation in the ensembles of qubits enclosed by a one-dimensional system of coupled optical cavities. Each cavity contains $ N $ qubits whose interaction with the quantum field of their respective cavity is governed by the Dicke Lipkin–Meshkov–Glick model. An excitation initially seeded in the ensemble at the end of the one-dimensional chain of coupled cavities transfers to the corresponding ensemble of the last cavity with success that depends on the mode-ensemble coupling $ \chi $, ensemble-mode detuning $ \delta $, photon hopping rate $ \lambda $, and size of a given ensemble $ N $. Suitable choices of such parameters enable overcoming the freezing effect induced by the choice of a far-off detuning regime. We identify working points at which three-ensemble $ W $ states and two-ensemble maximally entangled states emerge in the multipartite entanglement dynamics. This study provides a basis for manipulation of quantum states in a multipartite coupled cavity arrangement that may be useful in understanding very complex systems in the field of quantum information processing.
