Abstract: We analyse the entanglement dynamics in a nonlinear Kerr-like couplerinteracting with external environment. Whenever the reservoir is in a thermalvacuum state the entanglement measured by concurrence for a two-qubit systemexhibits regular oscillations of decreasing amplitude. In contrast, for thermalreservoirs we can observe dark periods in concurrence oscillations which canbe called a -sudden death- of the entanglement and the entanglement rebuildwhich can be named the -sudden birth- of entanglement. We show that thesefeatures can be observed when we deal with 2-qubit system as well as $2\otimes3$ system.
