We present a chiral metamaterial (CMM) made of periodically distributed compact elements in a form of twisted closed ring resonators designed to be operational in terahertz (THz) frequency range. We analyze the three observed resonances in the absorption spectra and electric field distribution of linearly polarized incident electromagnetic waves. It has been shown that they arise due to excitation of symmetric and antisymmetric modes and are dependent on the geometry of resonant elements as well as the periodicity of the system. For the case of incident circularly polarized waves, a phenomenon of circular dichroism was observed, and its origin and dependency on the geometrical parameters and metal and dielectric losses was examined. This study indicates that the proposed CMM has a high potential for applications in the design of different THz components.
