Integrated photonics is an essential technology for optical quantum computing. Universal, phase-stable, reconfigurable multimode interferometers (quantum photonic processors) enable manipulation of photonic quantum states and are one of the main components of photonic quantum computers in various architectures. In this paper, we report the realization of the largest quantum photonic processor to date. The processor enables arbitrary unitary transformations on its 20 input modes with a fidelity of (FHaar=97.4%, FPerm=99.5%), an average optical loss of 2.9 dB/mode, and high-visibility quantum interference (VHOM=98%). The processor is realized in Si3N4 waveguides.
