We propose a scheme to improve the SNR distribution as well as the spectral efficiency of M-QAM OFDM signal for indoor visible light communication by tilting the receiver plane. Newton method is employed for the photo-detector to receive maximum power by finding the optimal tilting angle. This method is a fast algorithm that only three searching steps are needed. The simulation results show that in the case of one LED source, the maximum spectral efficiency improvement is 0.44bit/s/Hz when the launching power of LED source is 12W; while in the case of four LED sources, the maximum spectral efficiency improvement is 0.21bit/s/Hz when the total launching power of the four LED sources is 12W.
