We present a new method for numerically reconstructing digital holograms on tilted planes. The method is based on the angular spectrum of plane waves. Fast Fourier transform algorithm is used twice and coordinate rotation in the Fourier domain enables to reconstruct the object field on the tilted planes. Correction of the anamorphism resulting from the coordinate transformation is performed by suitable interpolation of the spectral data. Experimental results are presented to demonstrate the method for a single-axis rotation. The algorithm is especially useful for tomographic image reconstruction.
