We investigate the electric-field effect on the exchange stiffness constant in a CoFeB/MgO junction through the observation of the spin-wave resonance in a nanoscale magnetic tunnel junction. We evaluate the electric-field dependence of the stiffness constant from the separation between resonance fields for the Kittel and spin-wave modes under electric fields. The obtained stiffness constant increases when the interfacial electron density is decreased. This dependence is consistent with that determined from the observation of electric-field dependent domain structures.
