A four-port terahertz beam splitter with a metallic aluminum reflecting layer is proposed, which offers high efficiency, effective zeroth-order suppression and polarization-independent properties. The grating parameters are optimized by means of rigorous coupled-wave analysis and simulated annealing. The optimized grating has a diffraction efficiency of 24.72% and 23.82% for ±1st and ±2nd orders respectively under transverse electric polarization, and 24.64% and 24.12% for ±1st and ±2nd orders respectively under transverse magnetic polarization at 118.83 μm polarization (i.e. 2.52 terahertz band). In addition, the electric field distribution map of the beam splitter can be analyzed by the finite element method, which can well explain the optical transmission mechanism inside the grating. The simple structure of the target grating and the good process tolerance also take advantage in its practical application..
