Here we present theoretical results for estimation of electromagnetic field energy density and absorbed energy in dispersive lossy chiral single-component metamaterials which consist of an ensemble of identical helical resonators as inclusions. The shape of the helical resonator can vary over a wide range, from a straight wire to a flat split ring. An interaction of the inclusions with harmonic circularly polarized electromagnetic plane waves is studied. We focus on how the inclusion shape influences the mentioned metamaterial properties. The derived general solution for the problem is in good agreement with previous partial and alternative solutions obtained for split ring resonators, straight wires, and helices. The study reveals the optimal geometry of helical lossy resonators for their strongest selectivity of interaction with circularly polarized radiation.
