Based on the interference effect of indistinguishable polarized photons leaking out of separated cavities with each atom trapped in separate cavity, using quantum nondemolition detection, we propose the robust schemes for the generation of N-atom GHZ state, three-atom W state and four-atom cluster state with a certain success probability. In Lamb-Dicke limit, the schemes do not require the simultaneous click of the photon-detectors. These made the schemes more realizable in experiments. Meanwhile, the advantage of the scheme is that the fidelity of the entangled states is not affected by the atomic spontaneous, cavity decay, and imperfection of the photodetectors. The schemes would be useful steps towards long-distance quantum communication.
