Abstract

We present an efficient method to generate a Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger (GHZ) entangled state of three cat-state qubits via circuit QED. The GHZ state is prepared with three microwave cavities coupled to a superconducting transmon qutrit. Because the qutrit remains in the ground state during the operation, decoherence caused by the energy relaxation and dephasing of the qutrit is greatly suppressed. The GHZ state is created deterministically, because no measurement is involved. Numerical simulations show that the high-fidelity generation of a three-cqubit GHZ state is feasible with the present circuit QED technology. This proposal can be easily extended to create a N-cqubit GHZ state (N3), with N microwave or optical cavities coupled to a natural or artificial three-level atom.
