This could be explained considering that in the Hamiltonian, the stress in the out-of-plane direction favored the dipole flipping into the in-plane, becoming 2 a hard axis of polarization and then reducing the formation of domains in the out-of-plane direction.
The presence of the electrical field E term in the Hamiltonian Equation (1) favors the flipping of dipoles in the out-of-plane direction, converting 2 in an easy axis of polarization.
