In any image, the number of detected probe particles is fundamentally limited, either due to finite acquisition times or  probe-induced sample damage. In order to optimize the sensitivity of a microscope, the information that can be extracted from each detected probe particle has to be maximized.  We achieve this by employing cavity enhancement, quantum enhancement, and wave-front shaping techniques.
