Electrical anisotropy modulation was recently observed in ferromagnetic semiconductors and metals. The authors have investigated magnetization switching through magnetic anisotropy modulation induced by external electric field by means of simulation. Macrospin simulation using Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equation shows that switching is possible by controlling magnetic anisotropy for appropriate sets of parameters. The condition for quasistatic magnetization switching is also presented, in which magnetization direction is determined to minimize the magnetic free energy.
