Squeezing ensemble of spins provides a way to surpass the standard quantum limit in quantum metrology and test the fundamental physics as well, and therefore attracts broad interest. Here we propose an experimentally accessible protocol to squeeze a giant ensemble of spins via the geometric phase control (GPC). Using the cavity-assisted Raman transition (CART) in a double Λ-type system, we realize an effective Dicke model. Under the condition of vanishing effective spin transition frequency, we find a particular evolution time where the cavity decouples from the spins and the spin ensemble is squeezed considerably. Our scheme combines the CART and the GPC, and has the potential to improve the sensitivity in quantum metrology with spins by about two orders.
