We propose a new method to compute the phase-only computer-generated hologram (CGH) that can modulate an image on a tilted plane. We used the fractional Fourier transformation to compute light propagation between the hologram plane and the tilted plane. The phase-only hologram was obtained by an iterative algorithm. We proposed a method to calculate the inverse optical propagation from the hologram plane to a tilted plane by coordinate rotation and a simple interpolation in the Fourier domain. The experimental results show that the projected image on the tilted plane can be reconstructed by a phase-only hologram generated by our iterative algorithm. We also show that the quality of the projected image on the tilted plane is better than the image projected by the phase hologram generated by traditional method.
