We consider finite time blow up solutions to the critical nonlinear Schrödinger equation For a suitable class of initial data in the energy space H 1, we prove that the solution splits in two parts: the first part corresponds to the singular part and accumulates a quantized amount of L 2 mass at the blow up point, the second part corresponds to the regular part and has a strong L 2 limit at blow up time.
