Variation in liquid pressure along the meniscus at t = 2500 ps for (a) Case I, and (b) Case II. High negative pressure values are seen at the center of the meniscus. A normalized function log(Π/δ
ne) is plotted in the region of negative liquid pressure for Π = R
c = -2γ/P
L and Π = δ(x), which nullifies the possibility of cavitation in this region as the meniscus thickness is smaller than the critical cavitation radius.
