Magnetization switching induced by electric fields in the absence of external magnetic field has been demonstrated in a field effect structure with a (Ga,Mn)As layer having an in-plane magnetic anisotropy. The switching is related to the modulation of the in-plane magnetic anisotropy by electric fields. Reducing magnetic anisotropy energy height by electric fields, we observe stochastic magnetization switching.
