abstract
The Geroch-Held-Penrose formalism is used to re-analyse algebraically special non-null Einstein-Maxwell fields, aligned as well as non-aligned, in the presence of a possible non-vanishing cosmological constant. A new invariant characterization is given of the Garc\'\i a-Pleba\'nski and Pleba\'nski-Hacyan metrics within the family of aligned solutions and of the Griffiths metrics within the family of the non-aligned solutions. As a corollary also the double alignment of the Debever-McLenaghan `class $\mathcal{D}$' metrics with non-vanishing cosmological constant is shown to be equivalent with the shear-free and geodesic behavior of their Debever-Penrose vectors.
