In the terahertz plasmonics, it is widely used wavelength 1D grooved metal gratings for excitation of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs). SPPs are traveling charge density waves at the surface of conducting materials. Since these modes have a non-radiative nature, it is possible to excite them only if the configuration providing the wavevector-matching condition between the incident light and SPP dispersion law. The wavelength gratings are the most suitable and cheaper solution to satisfy this requirement. The careful optimization of the most suitable experimental parameters by the numerical simulations leads to the enhancement of surface plasmon resonance response. In this paper, numerical results of grating optimization with different groove profiles are discussed. The work was supported by RSF grant 19-12-00103
