We propose a scheme for deterministically generating entanglement between two distant microwave cavities that interact with two single-molecule magnets (SMMs) and are connected by an optical fiber. In our scheme, the spontaneous decay of SMMs and photons damping in the fiber are efficiently suppressed via employing the stimulated Raman adiabatic passage (STIRAP). To check the experimental feasibility of our scheme, we numerically simulated the effects of some deviations of experimental parameters, and the numerical simulation shows that our scheme is robust with respect to those experimental parameters. We also discuss the effects of cavity damping, and as a result our proposal is good enough to demonstrate the generation of entanglement of microwave cavities within current experimental technology.
