Kuo Sung-tao (1818---1891) set a precedent of official travel in the Western world as the first ambassador in modern Chinese history. This diplomacy was especially significant for the history of the spread of Western learning to the East. The spectroscopy content in The Diary of Kuo Sung-tao is among the first attempts to learn and accept modern optical knowledge by a Chinese scholar-official. From the angle of the history of science and technology, this article uses the case of the spectroscopy contents in The Dairy of Kuo Sung-tao to analyze the process of how he came to accept this strange thing in order to set a special example for the study of how Western learning spread to the East.
