What is the spontaneous disintegration in which two particles and/or electromagnetic radiation are emitted?

would it be radioactivity, nuclear energy, fission or fusion?

Thank you

    In a very loose sense, fission fits the definition, but very loose. Usually more than two particles are released when fission occurs.
