Quantum repeaters were proposed as a solution for increasing the distance between two parties who wish to extract a secret key using quantum key distribution. We study memory-based quantum repeaters which use entanglement distillation at most in the first nesting level. We consider three different repeater architectures: optical schemes based on the original repeater proposal , more advanced heralded schemes employing atomic ensembles and linear optics , and so-called hybrid quantum repeaters using single spins and bright light sources . For each of these three models we calculate the asymptotic secret key rate and we estimate the minimal amount of resources and the minimal quality of the devices of the experimental set-up permitting to extract a secret key.
