A report on the failure modes of electrospun nanofibers was presented. Multiple necking formation and fragmentation at a high rate of stretching of the nanofibers was showed. The results distinguished nanofibers from macroscopic metal or polymer specimens where multiple necking was seldom reported as a failure mode.
