Decoherence and disentanglement are phenomena central to quantum mechanics. Here, we consider the relative rates of decoherence and disentanglement in two‐qubit, three‐qubit, and two‐qutrit systems when subject to pure dephasing noise alone, and a very recent result for systems. Of particular interest is the specific counterintuitive effect related to the nonadditivity of such weak noises, known as Entanglement Sudden Death (ESD), in which the entanglement of a composite quantum system goes abruptly to zero in finite time, coherence only exponentially decaying. We discuss these results in the context of the foundations of quantum mechanics.
