A scheme is proposed for the preparation of Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger states for three atoms and for teleportation of an entangled atom pair by use of the triplet in cavity QED. The cavity is only virtually excited, and thus the scheme is insensitive to the cavity field states and the cavity decay. The preparation and teleportation can be achieved in a simple way.
