So-called electronic copying is used in complementary medicine to produce preparations similar to homeopathic treatments. The physical basis of electronic copying is of scientific interest. Previously, significant spectral distinctions between electronic copies and hidden controls were found in near-infrared absorption [Korenbaum et al. (2013)] spectra. Concerns appeared regarding the reliability of the obtained evidence since most wavelengths coincide with the regions of transmission coefficient minima in water. Signals at those levels in photodetectors are comparable to background noise.  To increase signal to noise ratio, a study involving water-based electronic copies with radically thinner samples was undertaken. The absorption spectra of electronic copies of five parent substances were evaluated using IR-Fourier spectrometry (IRAffinity-1, Shimadzu) between 4000 – 400 cm-1. In absorption spectra of the electronic copies of three of five were found to host bands showing statistically significant differences in relation to the control spectrum. Most wavelengths were found outside the minima (noise-like) transmission coefficient area of water substrate, implying reliability in the spectral evidences of an electronic copying phenomenon. The wavelengths were characterized at energies of 0.37–0.45 eV, close to the modeled prediction of the oscillatory energies in coherent domains of water molecules; 0.54 eV [Del Giudice et al. (2015)]. The spectral proximity indicates the possibility of using this model as a hypothetical physical basis for electronic copying phenomenon.
