We define a boost factor as the ratio of the signal to noise obtained with coherent amplification to that obtained without using an amplifier. The boost factor thus quantifies the experimental gain that can be achieved by exploiting X-amp. The plot false color map shows the boost factor for simulations using constant scattering of the sample (10 counts s−1 in the data shown), but varying the scattering intensity of the background ([I_{{\rm bg}}]) and amplifier ([I_{\rm a}]).
