We fabricate the phenyl-substituted poly(p-phenylene vinylene) copolymer (super yellow, SY-PPV)-based polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs) with different device architectures to modulate the injection of opposite charge carriers and investigate the corresponding magnetoconductance (MC) responses. At the first glance, we find that all PLEDs exhibit the positive MC responses. By applying the mathematical analysis to fit the curves with two empirical equations of a non-Lorentzian and a Lorentzian function, we are able to extract the hidden negative MC component from the positive MC curve. We attribute the growth of the negative MC component to the reduced interaction of the triplet excitons with charges to generate the free charge carriers as modulated by the applied magnetic field, known as the triplet exciton-charge reaction, by analyzing MC responses for PLEDs of the charge-unbalanced and hole-blocking device configurations. The negative MC component causes the broadening of the line shape in MC curves.
