We propose an efficient protocol for complete polarized photons Bell-states and Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger (GHZ)-states analysis assisted by atoms. With the help of assistant atoms and some simple liner optical elements, the analysis of both polarization Bell states and GHZ states can be performed completely. In our protocol, the assistant atoms are trapped in cavity quantum electronic dynamics (QED), which is feasible with current experimental technology. Moreover, the polarized photons entangled states will not be destroyed in our protocol. Therefore, our scheme might contribute to the quantum communication, quantum computation, and some other fields in quantum information processing.
