We investigated the contribution of electron-phonon interaction to the broadening parameter of the Wannier-Stark ladders in oxidized macroporous silicon structures with different concentration of Si-O-Si states (TO and LO phonons). The obtained value of this parameter is much less than the Wannier-Stark ladder energy evaluated from giant oscillations of resonance electron scattering on the surface states of investigated structures. We determined the influence of broadening on the oscillation

The transformation takes place at the electron scattering lifetime coinciding with the period of electron oscillations in the presurface electric field.
