We investigate switching probabilities of electric field-induced magnetization switching in CoFeB/MgO based magnetic tunnel junction with perpendicular magnetic easy axis under static magnetic field with various directions. The switching takes place through magnetization precession with the period determined by the magnitude of the in-plane component of magnetic field. The experimental results are well reproduced by macro-spin simulation. The simulation reveals that decoherence induced by thermal fluctuations and/or other effects limit the switching probabilities in the present system.
