We present a deterministic and scalable scheme to generate photon polarization entanglement via a single electron spin confined in a charged quantum dot inside a microcavity. This scheme is based on giant circular birefringence and giant Faraday rotation induced by a single electron spin. Two independent photons are sequentially sent to the cavity and get entangled after measuring the spin state. We show that this scheme can be extended to generate multiphoton polarization entanglement including Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger states and cluster states in a deterministic way.
