A photoinduced spin-state change in the itinerant correlated electron system is studied. A photon introduced in the low-spin band insulator induces a bound state of the high-spin state and a photoexcited hole. This bound state brings a characteristic peak in the pump-probe optical absorption spectra which are completely different from the spectra in thermal-excited states. The present results well explain the recent experiments of the ultrafast optical spectroscopy in perovskite cobaltites.
