For increasing values of n, the fidelity obtained for a single direction falls rapidly below the optical ones. However, for a Cartesian frame the results are very close to the optimal ones. This paper shows how elliptic rydberg states can transfer information on the orientation of one direction, or more generally that of a Cartesian frame.
