When did the West become more powerful than the East?


So after the fall of Rome, Europe was kind of lagging behind compared to contemporary civilizations in Asia like the Caliphates of Arabia and empires in China, right? And that went on for a while, but in the 19th century there are European armies colonizing everywhere they can reach with little trouble. So the West''s military level must have skipped over that of the East at some point, but when was that specifically? And what would''ve been the most proximate factors that lead to it?
