We theoretically show that an entangled state can be prepared between distant heavy-hole spin qubits by using III-V semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) in cascaded cavities. In this scheme, using quantum state transfer between photons and carrier spins, the local spin-singlet state in a virtually excited trion is stretched into the two separated QDs via a single-photon transmission. We calculate the effective Liouville equation and determine the optimal conditions for entanglement creation. We also discuss the possibility of distributing entangled electron spins in the same manner.
