We report on an international cooperation between Nagoya University (NU), Japan and DLR Stuttgart, Germany on scaling issues in laser ablative propulsion. Lessons learned from collaborative work in the laboratory will be summarized with respect to the comparability of experimental methods and corresponding standardization issues. With the background of previous experimental research at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), experimental work with CO2 lasers in a moderate (NU) and high (DLR) pulse energy range on laser ablation of POM is presented. Profilometry results of target surfaces are compared with fluence distributions from beam propagation modeling. Ablation from flat targets is reported with respect to energy and area scaling and compared with results from ablative propulsion employing parabolic nozzles.
