A scheme for the controlled joint remote preparation of an arbitrary six-qubit cluster-type state by using only two sets of five-qubit GHZ states as quantum channel is proposed. In our scheme, Alice firstly performs two sets of two-qubit projective measurement according to the real coefficients and the complex coefficients of the desired six-qubit cluster-type state. Then, the controller Charlie must apply another two-qubit projective measurement according to the Alice’s measurement result. Finally, Bob can obtain the desired six-qubit cluster-type state according to an appropriate unitary operation. Our scheme can achieve unit success probability.
