Improved thermal coupling for a fragile member having a low tolerance to mechanical stress is provided by use of thin sheets of common household aluminum foil having impressed thereon a uniform pattern of indentations. The indentations create raised projections which resiliently support the fragile member by the application of a minimum pressure to provide a uniform, non-varying contact therebetween, thereby enabling the mechanical motion therebetween to be absorbed without damage to the fragile member.
